DVD Drive

I have a HP laptop that has a DVD drive; however, it doesn't currently play DVD for viewing. Is there any software that I can upload that will allow me to play DVD on the laptop. Thanks

Microsoft Media Player

There are others, but those are the most well known.

The laptop should have come with DVD decoder software, Windows does not have the ability to play DVD movies on it's own as it does not come with a decoder, and they are not free, if you have none you need to install a DVD player program such as WinDVD or PowerDVD which will install the proper decoder.

Interesting! Apart from this original poster, I have an dvd that doesn't play one educational dvd I have. I don't recall if I used it for dvd before or not. I assumed it was the drive being too old, 2 years. I will have to find my dvd power player and try that.
